Welcome to Wellness Connections
Southeastern Arizona Consumer-Run Services, Inc. (dba Wellness Connections) is a charitable 501(c)3 organization, proudly serving the community since 2002. Wellness Connections has the privilege of being the first consumer-operated (aka “peer-run”) agency in Southeastern AZ (Cochise, Graham, Greenlee and Santa Cruz Counties).
OUR MISSION: Wellness Connections is committed to providing peer-led, life-enhancing opportunities for mental health recovery and wellness.
OUR VISION: Wellness Connections’ recovery-based services are aimed at empowering program participants to make changes in their lives that allow them to achieve their highest potential.
Wellness Connections is a consumer-operated (aka "peer-run") organization, which means the company is founded by, managed by, and services are delivered by, peers who have their own "lived experience" with mental health and/or substance use recovery. We draw on this lived experience as we support and guide others along in their personal recovery journeys.
As a “trauma-informed” organization, we recognize that traumatic life experiences can have long-lasting impacts on our mental and physical health, and trauma is also often linked with substance use and other difficulties in life.
At Wellness Connections, we view wellness in a wholistic sense, treating the whole person. Our programs are designed to support recovery in alignment with SAMHSA’s 8 Dimensions of Wellness.
Services are closely coordinated with other providers and community partners. We believe this is essential for effective coordination of care, and to ensure participants are able to access all the resources needed to be as successful as possible in achieving their individualized goals for mental health & wellness, and independent living.
Wellness Connections is funded through service contracts with Banner Health, Cenpatico Integrated Care, Optum Health, and the DES Department of Vocational Rehabilitation. Fundraising and grants are also pursued in support of Wellness Connections' mission.
